there will be 60 votes to have a big debate on gun control on the floor of the united states senate. we'll bring you up to date right here on current tv. this show is about analyzing criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i am given to doing anyway. staying in tough with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. not only does senator rubio just care about rich people but somehow he thinks raising the minimum wage is a bad idea for the middle class. but we do care about them, right? vo: the war room tonight at 6 eastern (vo) current tv is the place for compelling true stories.

"morning joe." very favorable commentary right here. i guarantee you if he is up watching this right now, got a good david brooks column. he kind of excited this morning. people said this is kind of important to him. the fact all of these guys i'm trying to do something. in his mind, the white house is not totally out of bounds here. they say if we do this it will throw the republicans off and we have put something out there and this is something we would have agreed to any way in the larger context. understand, this president wants a grand bargain. he is going to give away the store in august of 2011. absolutely going to give away the store. he wants that grand bargain. and they view this as the best negotiating strategy and a lot of people disagree with him. they really want this. he genuinely want this. >> going on the lot and offering 26,000 he has the o

on the amendments process, that's always a treacherous path for the united states senate, people can always introduce poison pills, various amendments on things to hurt the overall legislation. but you'll probably see so many senators in agreement on this, that it might not be that big of a problem. >> how far are we in this process, how much support it has? are they 80% through? >> there's eight senators involved and rubio from 92 senators and then you have to open it up to the house. and president obama has been very supportive. this is a key issue for him. some of the liberal groups are going to say we don't want this to be a trigger for some of the -- democrats offline that it's not a trigger, it's goals and that could be a major sticking point and it's up to obama to say whether that trigger is okay or not and he's going to be taking a lot of pressure so that could be an issue that causes rubio to have some heartburn. >> 50% there? >> i think more than 50% is there, we still have struggles on the house, but it's coming along. >> gun legislation will fit the senate floor as soon as tomo
